I'm not computer knowledgeable but is the chromebook any good, I'm looking for a smaller device than my laptop and I'm not sure what processors etc. are good

I have the Asus and Lenovo Chromebook and bought my mum the HP one, they are the best laptops I have ever used. Beats my Macbook Pro in every speed test. Depends on what you want it for though. Definitely not for high end gaming or heavy processing tasks like video editing but if you want to get online, write up some documents and play Angry Birds they are the best at doing that. And they get faster not slower over time.

Have a look at what you can do with Google docs on your current PC. It'll probably do for what you want it to! Your child's school might also have a pupil office 365 subscription that provides office apps in the browser.

I am looking for a new Chromebook, but don't need the tablet. I might get this deal and sell the tablet for £75. :)

You have the old model 2013 http://www.techradar.com/reviews/pc-mac/laptops-portable-pcs/laptops-and-netbooks/hp-pavilion-14-chromebook-1156745/review/ This is the new model with the K1 processor. I've a couple of the old 2013 HP14 Chromebooks refurb from Argos used every day no issues they are screaming fast and the screens and keyboards excellent can only imagine what the K1 will be like! Eldest kid has the Acer CB 11.6 Haswell CPU, again fast, reliable no issues. Also refurb from Argos.

The "old" model

Word and Excel are available for Free and work fine on the Chromebook using the web versions. On the Chromebook go to the Chrome store and search for Word:

Create, edit and share Word documents. Work with others on shared projects, in real-time.
Office Online combines the most common Office features and real-time co-authoring capabilities so teams at school and home can collaborate on shared documents, presentations and spreadsheets.
Office Online also works with the Office applications installed on your desktop, so you can choose how you want to work. Use Office Online to dynamically collaborate with real time co-authoring, or if you already have Office, continue working with the full power of Word, PowerPoint, and Excel applications installed on your PC or Mac.
Getting started is simple;


Same for Excel unlike the Google counterparts Word and Excel are online only so cannot be used for offline editing. However the Google Docs and Sheets apps can and if needed you can move you work to Microsoft products when you get back on line.

As Jonnystorm suggested install Chrome (if you do not have it) go to the Chrome store and try Word or Excel online.

Of course if you want a cheap Windows PC this might be worth a look big HD (can be upgraded to SSD) 4gb of RAM and fast Dual core CPU and a DVD writer (can be replaced with a second HD or SSD using an adaptor that replaces the the opetical drive. The RAM on the Lenovo can also be upgraded.

It ships with Bing as the default search engine. This can be updated or use Chrome, Opera, Firefox

Also if you want the Win7 interface and boot straight to desktop Try Classic Shell (free) or Start8 (£5 odd)


Windows 8.1 is quite fast and has built in Antivirus. The Chromebooks are still a good option: Fast, Reliable, Simple.

Gearing towards Asus.

What do you prefer guys?
#20
Awesome deal, have some heat. Now trying to explain to myself that I do not need a Chromebook OR a tablet... grrr. Very tempted though as really do want to have a play with a Chromebook.
#21
can O2 priority be used with reserve and collect?
#22
Hey
Can someone please tell me which one is better? I just want it to browse the internet and watch youtube videos, so nothing major (mainly for xbox 360 tutorials!)

Thank you
#23
Great! Just what my friend was looking for, thank you.
#24
Bought the HP14 for my daughter earlier in the year, she loves it and is great for her homework/research..... and watching minecraft on youtube.

This next point is a software issue, not to do with the chromebooks as such..... It's a shame the Supervised User (ie a form of parental restriction on web browsing) is only for web pages, not the app store. just be mindful of that if you're planning on getting this for a young'en and you want them to be able to download apps from the googlestore.

Oh, and dont forget when you buy a chromebook you get 1TB Google Drive (Cloud Storage) for free for 2 years, must be redeemed by 1st of Jan (some info on it here)

likewise as my main computer, but these are great as a secondary laptop for the family to use or if you travel around (especially some of the HP14 models that have 3G/4G simcard slots) a lot and don't want your ££££ laptop/macbook getting dented/busted.

this article is def worth a read here

Buy the HP Steam14" the processor in it is a AMD quad core and comparable to an Intel i3 cost me 229 in pc world. Full windows 8.1 I choose it over a chromebook any day. Its really quick and a nice screen too.
#31
Very nice, heat!

Have a look at what you can do with Google docs on your current PC. It'll probably do for what you want it to! Your child's school might also have a pupil Office 365 subscription that provides office apps in the browser.
If the school has a Microsoft EES subscription, students and teachers can download the full version of Office (Office 365 Pro Plus for Windows or Office 2011 for Mac) for free.

http://blogs.office.com/2014/09/22/students-teachers-may-eligible-get-office-free/

Here’s what qualified students will receive:

* The latest versions of Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, Outlook, Access and Publisher
* Installation on up to five PCs or Macs, and Office apps on other mobile devices including Windows tablets and iPad
* 1 Terabyte of OneDrive cloud storage
* Office Online

The stream only has under 10gb remaining of local storage, once you have installed a few pieces of software you have run out and not being cloud based this is a problem. Give it a year and the stream will be horrendously slow whereas a chromebook will be just as fast if not faster. I have used both machines and the Chromebook outperforms the Stream significantly.
#35
Which is better :P out of the two selctions. Im also inclined to go for the asus bundle, although don't know that much about either the tablet or chromebooks. Although the battery life of chrome books are swaying my purchase decision.
#36
Tried to go and pick this up today, along with speakers for £59 to take the total over £300 so I could use the o2 priority code. System error with the code(s) they tried to use, so I left empty handed.

Hi does anyone know if this offer is still available?
